I've got to admit it. Now i've got no skunk i am sinking. I cant afford it. Indulging in drugs or keeping my mind at ease? What is the truth?
I genuinely am happy with my life even though its quite crap and im letting my family down. I said i would make them proud but all i do is the opposite.
Ill tell you how you can get addicted to cannabis for all the knowledgeable psycologists out there. Firstly to naively be in the company of 'the wrong crowd' as you say, who's parents were addicts and watched thier kids grow up with the same habits. Barely a teenager when you take your first drag, and life consists of getting your next ten bag. Do that for over a decade and your behaving as an addict.
I will not change though, i cant bs anyone. There is a main reason why i have to accept defeat when it comes to my weed problem.
By function i mean do anything i enjoy,.
Anyway thx for reading my thoughts, i hope people with similar or worse drug problems hold more courage and determination than me. I guess ill just do as ive always done and go with the flow. It wont be long until i find myself with nothing. Good luck to you whoever is reading. Much love.

Hi,
I'm so sorry your struggling, have you ever tried any drug rehabilitation programmes? Or gone to your gp for support?
You can't help it, we understand.

Weed is not physically addictive but it can be psychologically addictive.

I can function without it but it's much easier to deal with my PTSD with it.You can stop smoking if you really choose to.It might suck but it is do-able,it's not like getting off hard drugs.

I've tried turning point rehab, but found that i wasnt prepared to change. I listed all the positive things that would come from stopping and discovered that i could easily talk about change but the action is far more difficult. Reality is, without being stoned i am extremely depressed.

I understand that, and i think im have similar reasons for smoking when considering the positive effects. Do i choose to stop though? Im not prepared, weed has made me into this person who cannot deal with most shit. Responsibilities the mother in law, i gave up trying to be a good man a long time ago. Its selfish though and i realise that.

Not dissing my mother in law, just saying i dont want to be that guy. I admire the selflessness of people who put thier kids before them, thier familys and friends. It doesnt come easy for some of us.

Hi! I know this feeling well. I loved my weed when I was younger! I stopped smoking when I found out I was pregnant. I started again after. Eventually over the years (with a child and a job) I didn't have the time to be doing it anymore. I would maybe indulge when the little one was at his dad's for the weekend. I still do if I'm socialising and it's available. I guess I'm trying to say as life picks up speed the less time, money and want to smoke fades it out. I suppose my message is dont beat yourself up. You can and will make that a small part of your life over time. I know a lot of parents who smoke cannabis regularly and they aren't 'bad' parents, their children do not suffer any sort of neglect or miss out on anything from having a dad or mum who smokes. Dont put pressure on yourself just take it day by day. Your girlfriend knows you, if she wants to have children she can wait until you are ready to stop if she disagrees with it. Children need to come first.

Hi Luci,
Thanks for your reply. I really appreciate your insight and knowledge of someone who has been there. I think you are right and i feel a bit relieved from these worries. Hopefully things can work out i just need to get out of this and look back and say i achieved something important. I never set goals or look at my future but i really need to this time, there is too much at risk.

If you go without weed for a month the joy for most things comes back close to normal levels. 2 day mark is roughest, then 2 weeks. After 2 weeks it really starts turning brighter a lot. After a month the world looks so bright you will only look back on weed on bad days. If you have a rough life quitting can be very difficult, better sort life first and then try to cut it off, no worry about the weed until the rest is well enough in order for you to try for real and cut it out.

What I'm saying is you don't function without in large part simply cause of the addiction. You would function without, the hard part is just going through the days where you combat both the reverse effects and life. If you can improve life chances rise you can come over the addiction. And when you do life will get even better.

Try not focus to much on family, I mean you gotta a bit. More important is to make yourself proud and not letting yourself down. Small wins, small steps. With a focused mind on making progress you eventually will.

I was smoking for 20 years before my psychosis then it seemed to worsen my condition so I stopped cold turkey and haven't smoked in over two and a half years, I feel much better for it and have money in the bank now.

I still miss it from time to time and a lot of my friends still smoke but I just remember the paranoia and delusions and that feeling goes away pretty fast.
